Learn the secrets of machining—to drive sharp cutting tools using lathes, milling machines and drill presses and make precise, accurate cuts. Machining is used on engines, bicycles, appliances, kinetic or mechanical projects and much more. Our machine shop also has a lab for experienced workers to work on personal projects and for new students to perfect their machining skills.
Please see the Class Index page here.
Learn your way around the milling machine and the lathe – the cornerstones of a machine shop that also happen to be among the most complicated to operate. These two versatile tools will allow you to make almost anything out of metal with precision and accuracy.

Taking a lab is a great way to practice and perfect the skills you learn in class. In labs, you can work on class assignments or your own projects. Lab time is supervised but does not include instruction or materials.
